Wondering what the PMH-C after my name means and what it means for you? PMH-C is a perinatal mental health certification from Postpartum Support International (PSI). PSI reports that the Perinatal Mental Health Certification Program creates a structure for professional education and evaluation, and a standardization of training and experience to inform families and payers of perinatal mental health specialists. The certification curriculum requirements build on existing evidence-based perinatal mental health certificate trainings, adding an advanced-training component.
This means that I have additional training in recognizing perinatal ( both prenatal and postpartum) concerns and providing evidence based ( researched and proven) treatment to help all parties involved. Most importantly it means that I have invested extra time in preparing to support all moms, birth partners and those preparing for the perinatal stage of their lives. I have a passion for helping all families become the healthiest version possible for themselves and this certification helps insure that I am able to do that.
